    Interesting video. There is a real commitment to the technique and to getting the job done quickly. You don’t see that in a lot of stuff.

    I would say that it is also very straight forward, no overly complicated stuff. I think a lot of people make this stuff more complicated than it needs to be.

    I see some parallels with white crane in that commitment.

    From what I’m told, tibetan white crane was also a bodyguard system.

    I’ve heard that as well.

    I wonder if it was the system itself, or it was that certain people were simply very good and worked in that profession and they happened to practice those particular systems.
